Chile is a prominent destination for many a traveler, and within the country, Patagonia’s mountainous terrain, expansive wildlands, and sprawling waterways have made it one of the premier attractions for visitors. To celebrate the area’s beautiful influence, architect Pablo Larroulet decided to construct the AKA Patagonia Hotel — a multi-room facility where guests can connect and unwind alongside nature.

The AKA Patagonia Hotel is comprised of six individual spaces set against the backdrop of Puerto Natales. Demarcating the relationship between the area’s diverse environments, each of the Lenga-clad dwellings has been devised to deter adverse weather conditions, while still allowing for unimpeded views of the surrounding area. As such, the hotel’s various volumes have been conceptualized as an extension of the area’s ecosystem, instead of something manmade and intrusive. Throughout the day, natural light pours into the buildings’ small, but intimate living areas, providing an intentional connection to the flow of nature and time. Head to Larrou Arq’s website to learn more about the relaxing getaway.
